Morning after the merge...— Haseeb ＞|＜ (@hosseeb) September 15, 2022
What now guys?
3AC watching the merge from afar must feel like a kid being grounded on the 1st day of summer, watching all his neighbors play outside without him— Psycho (@AltcoinPsycho) September 15, 2022
"This is the first step in Ethereum's journey in being a mature system"— RYAN SΞAN ADAMS - rsa.eth 🦇🔊 (@RyanSAdams) September 15, 2022
"To me the merge symbolizes the difference between early stage Ethereum and the Ethereum we've always wanted"@VitalikButerin's first words after the merge.
The block times of the last 100 blocks!— Martin Köppelmann 🇺🇦 (@koeppelmann) September 15, 2022
Amazing stability after the merge! Only 1 missed block.
This is really the best case scenario! pic.twitter.com/dV1PF70vCL
I can’t help but feel that the Ethereum Merge is their S2X moment. Where #bitcoin defended against a push for centralisation, Ethereum has failed.— Peter McCormack 🏴☠️ (@PeterMcCormack) September 15, 2022
The consequences will likely be felt some time down the road.

I got the first transaction— The Transition (@0xTransition) September 15, 2022
One important corollary of this is better EIP 1559 performance (because fewer blocks bump up against the 2x limit). So far, the percentage of full blocks has dropped from ~20% to ~10%.https://t.co/qmCkqzYn2z https://t.co/8ZzlPunGEZ— vitalik.eth (@VitalikButerin) September 15, 2022
the merge has only convinced me further that the intellectual state of the btc community is truly in shambles. the high-quality people who remain (e.g. bitmex research) are mostly covering ethereum now. I still love Bitcoin very much and hope for a restorative movement.— Hasu⚡️🤖 (@hasufl) September 15, 2022
so the eth merge wound up having basically no price impact? that was the one possibility i didn't see folks talking about— alex (@alex) September 15, 2022

Congrats to the Ethereum community for their hard work all these years.

That was so smooth!— Viktor Bunin 🛡️ (@ViktorBunin) September 15, 2022
It's almost like spending years researching, pivoting roadmaps, funding multiple client teams, iterating methodically, launching in stages, commissioning audits, thoroughly testing, formally verifying, and conducting dozens of dry runs worked 🤔
9/ Additionally, I think the narrative on PoW will change over time.— Dan McArdle (@robustus) September 9, 2022
The ESG-based attacks are ludicrous on many levels, and enough people (& politicians) will see that eventually, and the remaining haters will matter even less.
And we finalized!— vitalik.eth (@VitalikButerin) September 15, 2022
Happy merge all. This is a big moment for the Ethereum ecosystem. Everyone who helped make the merge happen should feel very proud today.
I’ve said this before so many times, you need to have conviction and patience to survive early stage projects. Today is in many ways day one for a new Ethereum network. It’s going to take a while before the world realises how incredible that is.— kain.eth (@kaiynne) September 15, 2022

Holy shit congrats and thank you to everyone who worked so hard in making the merge a success. Feeling emotional seeing the Ethereum community come together for this moment and how far it has come ❤️— Linda Xie (@ljxie) September 15, 2022

Ethereum Merged!— Matt Huang (@matthuang) September 15, 2022
Beyond the apropos excitement for Ethereum and its future (withdrawals! 4844! etc)…
A massive technical achievement by an open & decentralized community over 8+ years.
Incredibly bullish on crypto communities as *new institutions* that can build Great Things.
Needless to say, neither side should annoy each other.— 6529 (@punk6529) September 15, 2022
BTC and ETH have 100x more in common with each other than the existing systems and should be happy for each other to succeed.
Each have taken their bet, it is now time to build adoption, the only thing that matters.
Can't say enough about all of the builders, researchers, coordinators and more that made this all happen.— eric.eth (@econoar) September 15, 2022
It's an absolutely incredible feat to transition a globally used blockchain to PoS without most end users even noticing or having to do anything.
Truly incredible. Cheers.
Eth folks already RTing one of the most aggressive and misleading esg trolls isn't great pic.twitter.com/hmDCFbYur2— Dan McArdle (@robustus) September 15, 2022
Even though we are usually focused on short term price action, the benefits of the Merge will be felt gradually. Much smaller emissions will ease of of the selling pressure. And the reduced energy cost will open the door for institutions to invest without concern.. $ETH— CoinMamba (@coinmamba) September 15, 2022
BREAKING: Ethereum has just ended its environmentally harmful PoW mining.— Digiconomist (@DigiEconomist) September 15, 2022
The network's electric power demand is likely reduced by 99.98%, which comes down to possibly as much as a country like Austria requires. CO2 savings may equal global CO2 reductions by EVs.

Practically nobody outside of a nerdy niche of technical crypto folks actually cares about what consensus mechanisms secure a given network.— Jameson Lopp (@lopp) September 15, 2022
A decade of history and experimentation has shown as much.
All that matters in the long term is the game theory; the game is afoot!
it is official.— 6529 (@punk6529) September 15, 2022
congratulations to everyone who worked on this.
and you can all go to bed now! https://t.co/VKoz68RG97
Greatest feat of decentralized coordination we'll ever see— Kanav Kariya (@KanavKariya) September 15, 2022
Mind breaking to think of the years of work and logistical coordination across hundreds of institutions to pull this off
All in an endeavor to come to consensus on a few megabytes of state every minute. Incredible https://t.co/HmRsPVLbOc
Truly an incredible technological feat – congrats Ethereum community on the merge!— Brad Garlinghouse (@bgarlinghouse) September 15, 2022
Ethereum switched to PoS at last. Doesn’t address crypto’s ugly political maladies, and of course it’s only one of many crypto ecosystems. But credit where due: this an important start toward addressing the sector’s dreadful climate impact. https://t.co/Vcs9k97Tcj— Cennydd Bowles (@Cennydd) September 15, 2022

The only way Bitcoin 'accelerates the world to renewable energy' is by— DavidHoffman.eth 🦇🔊🏴 (@TrustlessState) September 15, 2022
1. Placing huge demand on renewable energy
2. Then sending its own demand to 0, so the rest of the world can access the newly abundant supply
Kind of like what #Ethereum just did

Ethereum, the second most capitalized cryptocurrency, successfully passed The Merge update.— NekoZ (@NekozTek) September 15, 2022

ETH PoW is trading at $27 (1.7%). The daily rewards are 13100 ETH, $354k instead of $20m. There is no way miners can just ”keep mining” the ETHPoW chain, no matter how you adjust the difficulty. There simply aren’t enough rewards in the system to pay for the electricity bills.— Eric Wall X 🏴 (@ercwl) September 15, 2022
I DO NOT GIVE VITALIK PERMISSION TO MERGE MY ETH— foobar (@0xfoobar) September 14, 2022
Did you know you can opt out of the merge? By Ethereum law you can refuse to be a part of the experiment. Repost this to spread awareness, and tag @VitalikButerin to let him know he does not have permission to merge your ETH

1/ The path toward the Merge wasn't something that could have been predicted from the start. It took real growth, an evolution of ideas and research, a flourishing number of developers and contributors, a more diverse client community, and a maturing system of self governance— Aya Miyaguchi (ayamiya.eth) (@AyaMiyagotchi) September 15, 2022
The merge transition block has been officially justified (halfway to finalization). One more 6-minute epoch, and then the merge will be finalized!— foobar (@0xfoobar) September 15, 2022

1/ 🎊 Congratulations to @ethereum on making the Merge a reality. After years of preparation, Ethereum is transitioning from a proof-of-work to a proof-of-stake consensus mechanism.

This transition, years in the making, immediately slashes Ethereum's energy usage to almost nothing (-99.95%). Good job ETH.https://t.co/3d0HPLIBFd
The payoff is potentially gigantic. @ethereum should now consume 99.9% or so less energy. It's like Finland has suddenly shut off its power grid.— CRYPTONITE CAPITAL (@cryptonitecap_) September 15, 2022
